Skoda Rapid Automatic

The Rapid 1.0 TSI was introduced a few months ago but Skoda only announced manual version prices at the time. The automatic was supposed to be offered in the coming months, and its launch for September 17 has now been confirmed.

The Rapid ‘s automatic models will use the same 1.0-liter, three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine under the bonnet that makes 110PS/175Nm in the Rapid manual. Sadly, the 7-speed DSG is no longer on offer, but it was only sold previously with the Rapid diesel which is no longer on sale. With a 6-speed torque converter, the previously available 1.6-liter naturally aspired petrol engine was introduced.

With regard to the model list, the automatic Rapid will be available in all variants except for the base Operator. So you can have the Rider Plus, Passion, Onyx, Design or the Rapid’s Monte Carlo version with two-pedal configuration.

The Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris and Maruti Ciaz are all sold with a petrol-automatic in the compact sedan market, where the Rapid compete. However, with the Rapid being offered from the Rider Plus version onwards with an automatic gearbox, this could become the segment’s least expensive automatic option.
